Clients are the reason we're here, co-workers make it difficult to focus on central goal

I worked at WestCare full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Clients willing to better themselves make it worth while, Paid sick and vacation days, consistent hours, weekends off

Cons

Insurance is not that great and expensive, co-workers personalities can be intense, constant gossip, inconsistent work environment - you move around a lot

Advice to Management

Pick a facility for each program and keep it consistent, not just for the employees but for the families in residential who need that routine and familiarity. Better food for residential treatment, I have tried it and it is not healthy for anyone.

    I worked at WestCare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I loved working with the inmates. They were the reason I went to work for Westcare. I believed in the mission. I belleved in the work I was doing and felt I could make a difference.

    Cons

    mangement staff is poor. They don't care about direct care staff. Pay is terrible. Benefits are terrible. Most staff are more corrupt than the inmates we are working with.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house!! Get rid of your management and bring in some caring, honest, respectful people.
